The red Château Carbonnieux is the smooth result of an excellent blending of grape varieties from this region. The tannins are well balanced and silky in harmony with red fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry, cherry…) and reveal toasted notes from ageing in the finest quality French oak barrels.
Very deep purple-black in colour, it offers up a cedar chest, cinnamon stick and cloves-laced nose with a core of crème de cassis, blackberry compote and preserved plums (...). Full-bodied, concentrated and sporting a firm frame of velvety tannins, it has a lively line lifting the densely packed fruit, finishing long and on a compelling savoury note. robertparker.com
Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2012 offers a beautiful dark bright red colour. Its expressive nose reveals very fresh notes of red fruits with a hint of smoke. The attack in mouth is fresh and balanced with a fleshy and unctuous texture.
The wine is a subtle balance between maturity and freshness. The aromatic is characterised by the freshness with red fruits, spices notes of liquorice and dry herbs.
Once again, the château transcends the vintage and delivers a 2012 of remarkable purity and energy. Its definition and brilliance are absolutely fantastic, with a brightness of fruit and finesse of tannin which take it to the summit. Another landmark
